What toothpaste should I buy for my kids?

uy the one with the ADA Seal! There are so many toothpastes on the shelf for kids, it is hard to know which one to buy. They all taste good, but you might wonder which one works the best.

The American Dental Association (ADA) has made it easy for us. The ADA puts its Seal of Acceptance on a toothpaste after it has passed their criteria for safety and effectiveness. There are a variety of toothpastes for kids that have the ADA Seal of Acceptance.

Woodridge Dentist, Dr Hannah Baek recommends that you buy toothpastes for your kids that have this ADA Seal on the box or toothpaste label. This ADA seal means that the toothpaste is safe and has the right formulation of fluoride to help strengthen their teeth. Many flavors and manufacturers bear this seal. Here is a link to a one minute video about the ADA Seal of Acceptance.

Look for these toothpastes and many others with the ADA Seal of Acceptance in your favorite store:
